    Google is indexing some of my sub pages, and they are ranking well, but when users click them, I want them to be directed to my home page, and not the sub page, is this possible without affecting my rank for the inner page?

    Please let me know, thanks.

    You can 301 your sub-pages to your home page, but that will basically remove your sub-page in the serps. You *could* redirect everyone but the google-bot but that would be against the G TOS (not that I am against that) Is there no way to supply the same info in an image or an ad on the side of the page?

    I don't want to hide the sub page, i just want users to come to my home page first.

    WTF? You are trying to sabotage yourself out of good rankings. Why don't you just fix the content on those pages and let people find whatever it is they're searching for. If you direct them to a page they were not searching for, you'll have a very low conversion rate.

    I'm baffled... and I would highly recommend NOT using 301s, and not redirecting anyone. You're going to piss of your visitors.
